Oh sure, blame it on the alcohol, not the fact that your gf’s a dime, okay fine blame it on both. During his interview on Armchair Expert With Dax Shepard, Shawn Mendes discussed how the public’s obsession with him and his girlfriend Camila Cabello led them to post a messy make-out video, that he’s also attributing to too much tequila.

"We might have had a little too much tequila one night and just recorded ourselves making out as though we were monsters, to get a rise out of people," the Shawn admitted.

The 22-year-old singer explained that people accused them of kissing “like fish,” so they decided to take matters into their own hands, or should we say lips. "It just felt like everyone was talking about it and taking photos and there were paparazzi hiding in bushes and it was like, 'What if we just posted a photo of us licking each others' faces? Like, no one's ever even seen us kiss. We're just gonna go full-on gross,'" Shawn told Shepard.

The "Wonder" singer admitted he received mixed reactions from friends and fans afterward. "People were so offended by it and so excited by it, too," Mendes recalled. "It was like this really intense thing. I was getting messages from people being like, 'This is the funniest thing I've ever seen' and people being like, 'You should really take that down. I don't know, it's kind of offensive.’”

"It was ridiculous, but at the time, it was relevant," he added. Clearly many seem to agree, it’s been 4 months and we’re still talking about it, and we can’t even say tequila’s to blame for that. What do you think, was it too much or just enough? Take a look at the tequila-tastic kiss with Camila in Shawn’s post above.
